Building on a history of social and environmental value at the roots of the game, golf is poised to emerge as a leader in sustainable sport and business.

In many ways, from ecosystem services and conservation of wildlife, to health and well-being for all ages, to jobs and economic value through local supply chains, golf is good for nature and communities.  

Following years of research, professional expertise, and assessment, the industry is entering a new phase of activity to collectively and credibly represent its contribution while also pledging to do more and more – to drive sustainability in and through golf.

This effort is delivered in partnership with the GEO Foundation, the international non-profit dedicated entirely to providing a credible and accessible system of sustainability standards, support programmes, recognition, and capacity building for the golf industry.
